Another Peristaltic pump dosing DIY

Here is my attempt of a DIY Peristaltic Fert pump set-up.






Thanks to everyone here who has a similar set-up, I have got alot of helpful tips from your posts.

Having fun so far setting up the dosing schedule, already had my first (since DIY dosing) of a green tank , fixed now. So back to testing much much smaller doses (although I didn't dose anymore than I usually do by hand).

Having fun getting it right, anyone thinking of doing a similar set-up, go ahead and do it.

Going on a trip in July, need something like this. Links/threads on TPT you think would help?
